"I've never hacked a phone, told anyone to hack a phone, or published any stories based on the hacking of a phone," he tweeted this afternoon. This wasn't the first time he'd inserted himself into the Murdoch/Brooks testimony storyline today. But this time he had a reason — MP Louise Mensch accused him of getting scoops from phone hacking. (Morgan edited the News of the World, too.) He'll take her on on-air during Wolf Blitzer's show on CNN this afternoon. [Piers Morgan/Twitter]
